Cam Akers (ribs) is out Week 3

Cam Akers (ribs) is out Week 3 for the Rams, per Sean McVay.

Fantasy Impact

Malcolm Brown managed a full practice Thursday, despite a broken pinky finger, and Darrell Henderson is the sole healthy running back. With Akers ruled out, Henderson is a high-end RB3 with upside. Brown is a low-end RB3.

Cam Akers (ribs) not progressing as quickly as expected

Rams coach Sean McVay says Cam Akers (ribs) "isn’t coming along as quickly as he anticipated."

Fantasy Impact

Akers suffered a rib injury in the Rams' Week 2 win over the Eagles that always sounded a little worse than the team was letting on. It's beginning to look as if Akers will miss the team's Week 3 tilt with the Buffalo Bills, which would vault Darrell Henderson into high-end FLEX territory. Malcolm Brown would be a FLEX option as well, but Henderson is the preferred option as he's suddenly the healthiest option in this backfield.

Cam Akers (ribs) doesn't practice Wednesday

Cam Akers (ribs) was sidelined for Wednesday's practice.

Fantasy Impact

Akers left Sunday's game against the Eagles after just three rushing attempts. He was diagnosed with "separated cartilage in his ribs", which sounds painful. Originally deemed day-to-day, Akers will likely have to practice at some point this week in order to play against the Bills this weekend.

Cam Akers separated some rib cartilage, 'should be ok'

Rams coach Sean McVay says rookie RB Cam Akers separated some rib cartilage in Week 2 against the Eagles.

Fantasy Impact

Akers was running hard to start the day, totaling 13 yards on three attempts before going down. McVay added that Akers "should be ok" moving forward. It remains to be seen if he'll be healthy for a Week 3 tilt against the Bills. Fantasy managers should expect the Rams to utilize a three-way RBBC between him, Malcolm Brown, and Darrell Henderson.

Cam Akers (ribs) ruled out for Week 2

Cam Akers has been ruled out for the remainder of Week 2 due to a rib injury.

Fantasy Impact

Akers ran three times for 13 yards before departing. Malcolm Brown and Darrell Henderson will split carries during his absence.
